    90s StumpJumper frames: Tange "Prestige" vs Tange "Off Road"

    I have a '91 Specialized StumpJumper made with Tange "Off Road" double butted tubing.

    I just picked up a '90-something StumpJumper FS frame with Tange "Prestige" tubing.


    I'm always reading good things about Prestige tubing, but I've never read about this Tange "Off Road" found on regular Stumpys.

    What is the difference?

    Try the "Vintage Retro Classic" forum a little further down the page.

    Beats me.

    I guess vintage is code for old tech.

    Prestige would be considered to be better tubing, lighter given the same size. I have a Specialized Crossroads, a hybrid from that same era, that uses the "Off Road " tubing also, so it would seem to be used at lower price levels.

    Does anyone know the specific differences in the tubings?

    The fork on the Stumpy is the '92 recalled fork and it needs maintenance. I'd rather not deal with it.

    I'm not sure if asking this is allowed, but does anyone have a rigid fork that would fit this 17.5" Stumpy?

    The previous owner jammed an over-sized seat post in the frame. I spent the whole day getting it out.

    Production mountain bikes have been available for about 30 years. We're discussing a 20 year old bike here. So, in that context, yes: 1990s era bikes are vintage.

    The fork has a 1 1/8" threaded steerer tube.

    I wanted to use a 1" fork I had that's made of Tange "2.0".

    The diameter of the frame's head tube accommodates a 1 1/8th fork. The fork I stashed a long time ago and planned to used was 1" threaded. I know of headset reducers, but It doesn't matter now, anyway. The steerer tube turned out to be bent.

    Now, I'm looking for a proper 1 1/8th" fork for the '92? StumpJumper. Disc brake compatibility would be a big plus. The sooner I get this built up, the sooner my S.O. gets to ride the '91 StumpJumper on the trails with me.

    Edit: Any suggestions?

    I did some lurkadurking and stumbled upon this fork. Anyone have details on this? I only see the CX fork when Googled.

    I messaged the poster, but it looks like his account hasn't been active in a while.
